Because files can fit in many different categories and contexts, a tagging approach to managing them, like the kind we have for photos, bookmarks, and blog posts, makes sense. Elyse provides tag management for your files, with up to 30 tags in the free version.
TagLists is a small application for OS X that allows you to quickly see which files you've tagged with particular tags. It uses the OpenMeta tagging system, which means that it finds files that have been tagged with any of the applications that support OpenMeta.
With Leap you find things based on your natural memory of that file. “Hhmm it was a big photoshop file of a basketball court” or “Something I tagged important” or “A word document somewhere in my documents folder”.
